Research

One of the largest Geography and Planning departments in the UK, Liverpool has an established international reputation for research excellence. Four mature, inclusive, vibrant, and cognate Research Groups drive our research excellence.

Our ethos is to undertake research to understand better the physical and human processes shaping our environment and communities, the cognition and utilisation of these processes to support decision-making, and to predict the trajectories and causes of future change.

Conducting research that has an impact on society is an ethos enshrined in our strategic priorities and we specialise in societally relevant research. We drive our Interdisciplinary and Impact Agenda by (co-) leading University Centres and Institutes bringing together researchers from across disciplines and the world.
